From the Pulpit: “This is why I am a priest of the church today.”

“So this is why I am a priest of the church today. Because I get to serve God in and through a church that continues to lift me up, a church that takes both Word and Sacrament very seriously, a church that encourages my gifts for worship and service, a church that reminds me that God will give me the strength and courage to do the hard work of being Jesus for others for the sake of the good news God wants us to share with them. These are places I find myself in our scripture lessons today. They are places of blessing for me. That is why I find myself in this pulpit of Trinity Church. It’s a good fit, I think. And a blessing.”
